This is a set up for depression. You must study right through the year and and you will be successful. Also you may have the exam panic that makes it difficult to study. Meet a counselor and get some help in that region. Most learning by now is audio-visual. The hearing and remembering, and the seeing and remembering are going to be very important. Of this the visual has a clear advantage over the audio mode of learning. However, it is the combination, with the visual being the primary mode of learning, that will give you the best results. So concentration in these two modes and their development will give your children a distinct advantage over the others. The eye exercise is really very simple: have the child hold a ball-point pen and move it in all directions, up and done, and near and far, but never out of sight and without any movement of the head; the kid should focus visually on the point of the pen which will normally reflect a point of light even if the source of light is behind the pen. The movement must be slow and smooth. The person watching the kid must time him in the following format: first, with both eyes the child will focus on the point for one minute, then the person monitoring the test will inform the kid, ‘change’, then the kid should now block any one eye without pressing the eyeball. After one minute of this, ‘change’ will be told once again and the kid will have to block the other eye and focus on the point with the open eye. ‘Change’ will be said once more and the kid can open both eyes and watch the point of light for one more minute. The exercise stops at the end of four minutes. During the exercise no one should talk to the kid and the kid should not talk to anyone else, either. The ear exercise involves placing the kid seated in the central most part of the house, and he needs to be able to see a clock with a secondhand to it. Only one other person can do this exercise with him. When the kid is ready he will say, ‘start’ and the exercise begins. The one person doing the exercise with him will walk around the kid while initiating a dialogue with the kid. He will walk to all four extremities of the house while still maintaining a dialogue with the kid. When one minute is over the kid will block one ear still continuing the exercise. After one minute of this the kid will block the other ear and open the previous ear, while still continuing the conversation. After one minute of this the kid will open both ears and continue the dialogue. At the end of four minutes, the kid will announce, ‘stop’. The exercise is done but the kid should now recall verbatim, the entire conversation. This recall is assessed roughly on the following criteria: 80% marks for the recall of content, 10% for the same order it was spoken, and 10% for the same language that was used. No interpretation is allowed. So you may give a complete score of 62%, for example, without breaking down the actual percentages obtained under each criterion. There should be no argument as to why these marks were given, and there should be no time given for ‘trying’ to recall. Some rules to follow when doing the exercise: keep it simple, talk slowly, and the topic must be thematic. Anyone of the two participants may start a topic. Both these exercises must be done at least four times a day, with a minimum gap of 30 minutes between each set of ear and eye exercise. This must be done every day without missing any for 10 weeks. If even one day is missed, you have to start the whole exercise all over again for 10 weeks. The scores must be recorded to see progress. If there is any emergency, it can be done at least twice of that day but the next day the four times a day must be resumed. The kid should not be helped to remember with any clues or hints. Here are some things you can do to get back your concentration and memory: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

I have a bad habit of smoking Will you give me some suggestions for cigarette free life.

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Four" a" of challenging smoking habit. Avoid: certain places and people can tempt you to smoke, stay away. Alter: take a walk when you used to take a smoke break. Alternatives: use oral substitutes like gum, cloves or sauf activities: exercise or hobby that keep your hands busy can help to distract the urge to smoke. Consultation with a deaddiction specialist/ psychiatrist can help you more if above measures are not helping.

I am 17 years old I will complete 10th always thinking about the earning money so please tell the reason.
Your thoughts about earning money suggests that you want to be more independent. You may be feeling that lack of money to spend is the only constraint in your life. If your family can afford to meet your essential needs or if you have some real need for money to be used for productive purposes then you can do some partime jobs. But keep in mind that this is the prime age to develop Your skills and knowledge. Whether you try to earn money or not your primary focus should be develop your skills and knowledge which will only help you to earn in future.

Sayings Like masturbation helps to free from stress, get a better sleep etc. But why I am so addicted to it when I am seeing any kind of attractive thing like beautiful or sexy girls I just feels that I want to sex with her and I rushes to somewhere to masturbate and after that it feels me very lazy. I even controls my self but I couldn't. It makes me like I am doing any kind of drugs. And I am so addict a day will not pass without doing this even some days 3 or 4 times. So please let me know any kind suggestion while I can get free from it.

Yes this is clearly a sign of addiction. It is a type of'procedural addiction' masturabation gives you the same high (dopamine high) that a drug of abuse would give. It is safe when it's done under control. You seem to be getting excessively and easily aroused. You need to exert control over your arousal, not on masturabation. When you get sexual thoughts distract your mind with something neutral. Make a list of distractions, like listening to a song, calling someone, thinking about a non arousing topic, looking at different things in the surroundings, etc. Do not go to a place where you can relieve yourself, because every time you do it, your brain gets a'kick' and this action becomes more reinforced. It will reduce gradually. There are medicines available for hyper sexuality, that you can take temporarily while you practice more self-control. Visit a psychiatrist for complete guidance.

This involves long term treatment and he must also get counseling from a professional. He can be taught about handling his feelings particularly fear, and to distinguish reality from fiction. This may take a lot of time but the slow process is better to develop trust. He should be taken for regular exercise, and put on a tight program of interesting activities and productive functions. The more one can get him out of his disturbed mind by distracting things to do the result will be very useful. The consistent use of the medication will gradually subdue him from any violent outbursts and make him more amenable to therapy. Even if that does not get the desired outcomes then consult with the doctor to treat him with a course of ECTs or electroconvulsive therapy. The ECTs are a last resort and is decided by the doctor only. If you let him be idle or let him decide what he is willing to do, he will rule you all completely and will not be functional. So at any cost do not let him choose and you may have to force him to comply with the therapeutic needs. If all of this fails, then you may have to look at institutionalizing him, which is a tough call but may become absolutely necessary.

Hi lybrate-user, at this age these incidences are very common. Love is a broader term; the one who is made for you will meet you at proper time but you have to wait for that golden opportunity. To commit suicide is a weird and most condemnable thing to do. One should not even think of it. Your parents and family members love you a lot and please think of all those who love you not due to your education or looks but just as you are. Be you and feel special. Always try to improve yourself as a person, and compete with yourself. Learn from your past mistakes and always focus on the good things that you have achieved in your life instead of looking on what bad things have happened with you. You have to take charge of your happiness. Is your happiness so cheap that a lady or a gentleman can ruin it completely? Rather be special and setup an example for people and pear group. Make your presence special, make your smile special, make your guesture and posture special, in short love yourself. Your present problem states that you are not in love with yourself, that's why you feel in negative way. Now answer honestly who would purchase stale bread? Obviously no one. Similarly, think who would love a guy who doesn't love himself? So I think you got your answer, be brave. Babies don't leave walking due to fear of falling, we don't leave driving due to fear of accidents then why shall we feel negative in life. It happens Nikhil, believe me life is a suspense and I am sure you need to prove yourself. I am pretty sure you would make any girl feel special but that lady is not so special to deserve your love. Please do not waste your energy and divert it into some positive aspects so that your energy may bring light in many lives. Definitely, You should consult a psychiatrist for channelising your negative energy into positive energy and make you feel special. :)

I m smoking for 10 years I want to quit smoking is there any way I can regain the ling capacity again.

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
It’s not too late to reverse the effects of smoking. An overwhelming amount of damage to your health can be reversed by quitting. Studies have shown that quitting at around age 30 reduces the chance of dying from smoking-related diseases by more than 90%. If you quit at around age 50, you reduce the risk of dying prematurely by 50% compared with those who continue to smoke. Even those who quit at around age 60 or older live longer than those who continue to smoke. Not only that but you’ll experience immediate health benefits from being a nonsmoker – as quickly as 20 minutes after you quit. What Happens When You Quit Immediately after quitting smoking, heart rate and blood pressure, which is abnormally high while smoking, begin to return to normal. Within a few hours, the level of carbon monoxide, which reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen, begins to decline. Within a few weeks, circulation improves, you don’t produce as much phlegm, and you don’t cough or wheeze as often. The workload on the heart is decreased and cardiac function is improved. Food tastes better, and your sense of smell returns to normal. Everyday activities no longer leave you out of breath. Within several months of quitting, you experience significant improvements in lung function. In one year, your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke is halved. In five years, many kinds of cancer, including lung, larynx, mouth, stomach, cervix, bladder, show decline in risk, and that decline approaches the risk of someone who has never smoked. Within 10 to 15 years, risk of lung disease, including bronchitis and emphysema, are decreased. Conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, thyroid conditions, hearing loss, dementia, and osteoporosis are positively affected. Nerve endings in the mouth and nose begin to regenerate, improving taste and smell. Medications may work better, enabling some to be taken in decreased doses. If you’re taking birth control pills, quitting smoking will decrease your chance of heart attack and stroke due to clotting. You’ll have decreased risk for impotence and infertility. If you’re pregnant, you’ll protect your unborn child from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and low birth weight. Years will be added to your life: people who quit smoking, regardless of their age, are less likely than those who continue to smoke to die from smoking-related illness.

My 15 yr old daughter recently treated for anorexia nervosa is currently under medication e.G fluoexitine and resperidon and also having counselling.How to stop her physical exercise habit and also to increase some apetite?

BSc Home Science, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
Anorexia is a form of under nutrition to the body. She has to take iron supplements to increase her appetite and then protein, multivitamins and other nutrients which are missing for a prolonged period of time should be given in increased doses to make up optimum nutrition level however after the body starts to accept them.
